When the ultrasound technician asked if my husband and I wanted to know the gender, we both said no.

A little sunscreen goes a long way

My kids have been out of school for two weeks and the morning routine has drastically changed. There is a lot of squirming from my youngest and a few excuses from my oldest… It is a struggle to get them to wear sunscreen.

Get control of your allergies

Spring is officially here. The flowers, trees, and weather say so. I can remember making all my friends and relatives jealous when I first moved down to Georgia because of the early spring weather.
